Brodie Castle, (National Trust for Scotland) located midway between Nairn and Forres is famous for its daffodil collection. They grow amongst the trees, in the old walled garden and along the walks too. Brodie is just a ten-minute cycle from the house, and a favourite part of my cycle routes around the area. Brodie is part of the National Collection and the variety of them is extensive. This year, the early spring brought them forth earlier than usual.
